Interesting.

Not sure if anyone will put up that 1st rounder.. but if they do... what a decision to make.

That poster has 500 followers. Not sure if King said it or not. Anyone know?

On Taysom Hill. I asked Sean Payton on “The Peter King Podcast” whether he thinks a team will make an offer to restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill, who has become hugely valuable since being claimed on waivers from Green Bay in 2017. Payton thought for a minute and said: “Yeah, I think someone is going to make him an offer. But the first thing the fan has to understand is . . . if we tender Taysom as a one [meaning placing a first-round tag on him], the team that makes the offer on him and signs him to an offer understands they’re going to give up a first-round pick if we don’t match. That’s easier to do if you’re pick 22, 23, 24, 25. We might very well see it if it’s a team in the second half of the [first round].” I’d expect the Saints to tender him with a first-round tag, particularly if Drew Brees retires. I told Payton I’d like to see him coach for the next 10 years. “I’d like to do that,” he said. “He was a valuable claim for us. Like gold bullion.”

I wonder if a team with multiple 1st round selections, like Miami, is allowed to decide which 1st round pick to offer.
I'm not 100% on this, but I would think the team would have to give up their original (earned) first round slot position and not one that was obtained by trading with another team.

That makes sense and certainly sounds right.

This is correct. Unless they acquire a pick that is higher than their original pick, which can then be used to sign a RFA. In other words they can trade away their original pick, but then acquire another pick that was higher than that to use on a RFA.
